Welcome to BCIMS

The British Columbia Insight Meditation Society (BCIMS) is a non-profit organization based in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Formed to connect and support Buddhist meditation communities in B.C. that practice in the Theravada tradition, we provide access to teachings through classes, sitting groups, study groups and retreats, and build sangha through community events, volunteer work and compassionate action.

We invite you to join us exploring the Buddha’s teachings on insight, generosity and kindness; and in awakening the body, mind and heart in formal meditation practice and in the challenge of daily life.
